Six-word Saturday


Cat in the Hat: Oh, that...

This morning, my husband and I will be packing up the kids and heading to our local Barnes and Noble to see The Cat in the Hat and listen to some stories by Dr. Seuss. Now this isn't exactly my idea of a thrilling morning activity—especially since it's early morning—but I'm sure the kids will enjoy it. My kindergarten-age son is learning how to read, and two days ago he read Green Eggs and Ham to me. Amazing! I certainly wasn't reading in kindergarten—back in the old, old days. ;)

Our other Saturday excursion will be to the clothing stores. The kids need picture clothes, and I'm crossing my fingers that finding them will be an easy task. Hopefully, seeing The Cat in the Hat will put everyone in a good mood. ☺


Wishing you all a fun-filled and happy weekend!

  11. Dr. Seuss' b-day was March 2nd- Read Across America for those in the kid circle.
    Yesterday in my classroom we made Green Eggs and Spam! The eggs were actually GREEN INSIDE! Can you believe it? A teacher trick I invented a few years back.
    Reading with kids is awesome...check out Mo Willems books- the new Dr. Seuss!

  12. That sounds like a fun day Dana!! How cool your son is starting to learn to read too! Always an adventure when a child learns to read and then likes to read; the whole world is opened to them literally!

  14. That sounds like quite the eventful Saturday, especially the clothes shopping. Hope you succeeded in finding everything you needed (in a pleasant way). I love reading to kids but now many of the kids I read to earlier are now reading to me ;). It's great to see their growing confidence and pride. And I'm so happy they have found that happiness in reading too!

  24. Fun to read all the comments! Dr. Seuss has often been a favorite with my elementary school students. Sometimes I lug my six-in-one collection to school for the most avid of them.

  25. Those kids are soooo smart now aren't they!!! Our pre-kindergardener granddaughter, is learning French. She and her older sister actually have conversations in French.

    I hope you enjoyed the day out with the kids. My afternoon was at a birthday party for a widow lady, 80 now. She had a quilt showing of some of the pretty quilts she made. Needless to say, I took pictures (new camera) and will be putting some of them on my blog.
